Nice pics, as usual, Doug.

Interesting that there are no (significant) hot spots from the flash. Is that because you were so far away? And/or the celebrities know to put make-up on their face? In general, are flash hot spots an issue that you need to think about when you shoot these events?

In general, they are all professionally made up, almost certainly not by themselves but by dedicated make-up artists.
With the right make-up flash hot spots are really minimal, and blending ambient and flash exposures ensures that the range of contrast on the face is somewhat muted.

That said, I did lightly airbrush Erica Durance's forehead in one small spot, and Chandra West's nose -  mainly because her agent complained about another photographer's photo of her at the event and demanded it be taken down, so I fixed a spot on her nose because who needs the aggravation of Hollywood agents on your case : )

But other than that they are as is.

It is unusual to have problems, like major problems not small areas, with hot spots at these events. They use some of the best make-up artists in the world for these red carpets because the photos are distributed far and wide for quite some time after the event.
